When you try your hardest, but it isn’t enough.

Well, as I stare at this blank page on my screen, I can’t help but feel disappointment, embarrassment, and kind of just sad. I did not pass the exam yesterday by a few points. It’s just so frustrating that I really tried my hardest, and it still wasn’t enough. I failed…those words kept getting louder and louder in my head all day yesterday. I cried. I was so mad at myself. I cried some more. I gave myself a headache from it all and was totally exhausted and drained by the end of the day.

Thankfully I have the best husband, and the best family who are so encouraging and supportive…their pep talks helped me to get over it and shift my thinking a bit. I did not fail because I didn’t give up. I did not fail because I studied and I tried my hardest. And you know what? It’s not the end of the world. As much as I could go on feeling like “I failed”, boo hoo, I can’t do that. I can’t be so hard on myself. All I can do is keep trying, and not give up!


I am so happy it is a very long weekend! This is the perfect time to reset my brain and to relax a bit. I am hoping to spend some quality time with hubby, my family, and of course my nephews. I already got in a great 3.5 mile run this morning to clear my head and started this day off on a good note! What did you do for a workout today? On a side note, I cannot believe it is already JULY 1!! Summer, slow down!!! I really wish it was summer all year round! I love the heat 😉

I hope you all have a fantastic Saturday! Xoxo
